According to eric:
# Perhaps we need to take a look at the guys at the NV Association (the 
makers of NVDA, the free
# windows screen reader).
Seriously? The NV Association is *not* a general accessibility 
organization. It is the organization that handles funding for the NVDA 
Windows screen reader only. This is good enough for people who are still 
Microsoft dependent, but not good for the rest of us. Should Sonar or 
Vinux help fund Windows development? I think not. Therefore, the NV 
Association is perfectly justified if they refuse funding of Linux 
development, as that's just not what they do. That would go far in 
explaining why as I recall, they have in fact been approached on several 
occasions regarding funding of Linux accessibility development, but 
refused to help, either with funds or with developers. It would be like 
asking ArchLinux to help Microsoft develop Windows. It's simply not 
gonna happen.
